Fantastic New Benefit for ISPA Professionals!

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

ISPA has formed an alliance with AuthorHouse to bring Publishing Punch into the Association. Here are the details outlined:

ISPA/NP2 publishing is a subsidy of NogginPower2, Inc. ISPA/NP2 Publishing publishes books, booklets, programs, training materials and other materials that relate to all facets and all levels of sports, health, fitness, nutrition, coaching, training, sports manuals, diet, recreation, and select sports biography, human interest, sports theory, sports ethics, sports literary.

ISPA/NP2 Publishing was established to provide an avenue for sports professionals to publish their works and to have access to the works of other sports professionals. ISPA/NP2 welcomes submissions from all professionals and being a credentialed professional by The International Sports Professionals Association does not guarantee a work will be accepted for publication. Being an ISPA credentialed sports professional and/or provisionally credentialed professional does get priority consideration in the review process.

Please read carefully the submission guidelines listed under the section ‘Submission’ on the ISPA web site:   www.theISPA.org

Benefits and Features in Alliance with AuthorHouse™

A unique partnership in the vanguard of publishing’s future.

Traditional book publishing is undergoing a transformation with electronic publishing and the current global economic conditions. It is more difficult than ever for authors to get their works published. Yet, publishing remains a highly desirable way to advance a professional career for the academic professional as well as for the clinical professional. ISPA is strident in helping professionals build their careers; therefore, this alliance with AuthorHouse Publishing makes publishing accessible, streamlined, and efficient. Authors share with ISPA in the initial risk of publishing accepted works and can choose from a variety of sales and marketing programs to promote their works. Authors retain copyright to their work. Author royalties will vary based on the price and marketability of each book/manual/monograph but are higher than traditional (old school) publishing houses that often range from 3-10%. The following options outline the possibilities of publishing through ISPA and AuthorHouse.
